Our hearts go out to the class of 2020. These months are supposed to be some of the best of your life, and unfortunately due to COVID-19, many of the events you have been looking forward to for years are no longer a possibility. Your years of hard work and dedication are not going unnoticed despite all the uncertainty in the world. You may not be able to walk across that stage in your cap and gown to receive your diploma, but your accomplishments can still be celebrated safely in many other ways.
How to Celebrate Graduation While Social Distancing
- Virtual Graduation Party
- Change the Date
- Share Memories
- Create a Graduation Hashtag
Have a graduation party, just virtually. With the many video sharing platforms for large groups you can invite the whole family, all your friends, and even your neighbors. This is the best way to limit social interaction while still allowing everyone to enjoy the party safely from their homes.
If you would rather have the opportunity to hug your guests when they congratulate you on all of your hard work, simply change the date of your original graduation party. While we are still not sure where the next few months will take us, postponing your celebration for the end of the year, or even next summer, will give you something to look forward to. It’s never too late to celebrate such a big milestone!
Gather around with your family and share your favorite school memories as well as what you are most looking forward to in this new chapter in your life. If you’re bummed that you’re going to be missing out on hearing an awesome, inspiring valedictorian speech, YouTube has plenty of great ones, including from celebrities, that you can listen to for the same effect!
Nothing virtually connects people more than a great hashtag! Come up with a creative hashtag for your graduating class and share it with your classmates. Use the hashtag when you post photos, memories, or best wishes and you will instantly realize how close everyone is despite having to socially distance.
